I have a cap on the back of my full-size pick-up. These were super easy to install (just drill two holes each), and come with an awesome rubber backing piece that keeps those holes water-tight. Bars attach/detach easily, these little pieces accomplish their task perfectly and simply, I love them they were a great purchase.

I loved the fit of this, it's lightweight, would be great under a helmet, but it just didn't come down far enough to cover both ears completely. I'm bald, with a larger than average head, so I really need something with a deep bowl so-to-speak in order to cover my ears completely, which is what I want for activity. For casual around town it would've worked fine, but in my instance I just need something deeper.

For a guy that typically wears size large the large in this fits perfectly.

It is super duper warm. However, it is a classic wool sweater, it's itchy if directly against the skin. If you can pretend it's giving you a tiny massage that's great, it has a nice feel. I wear a t-shirt under it and the itch is there but not so bad it's unbearable. All in all I like this very much and I'm sure it's going to last a long, long time.

This thing's great to have at your desk. Do a hundred squeezes each hand a couple times a day. Hold shut for a minute a couple times a day, things like that.

But, it's fantastic if getting tattoo work done. Tattoos hurt, it's nice to have this little guy to squeeze to refocus that pain and let it go.

I have 4 of these. They rule.

I go car camping a lot, very often.

I fill 3 of these about 2/3 of the way full with water and freeze them before leaving. Using the frozen nalgenes in the cooler still keeps everything cold, but also super clean. You don't have 3' of water in the bottom of the cooler a day later like you do with a bag of ice.

Also, when hiking or out on adventure take one of the frozen bottles with you. It will melt slowly throughout the day but you can still sip on it and have real cold water all day, which is amazing especially in the desert.

Just do not fill them to full when you freeze them. The water will expand and the ice will burst the bottle.

I was hoping to get a bag to be my coffee kit for car camping. Want to fit a jetboil, drip deally and filters, and the coffee inside. This bag is too small for that. It just doesn't quite zip shut with a jetboil inside, and there wouldn't be enough room for the rest of the kit. Two nalgenes would probably just not fit, just to give an idea of size.

Otherwise it's a great bag. Has an extra clear-case bag that velcros in place inside. I gave it to my ex-girlfriend-girlfriend and she likes it very much and started using it regularly immediately.

This shirt is super comfy and I love it. But just know it's big for a large. Some flannel after you wash it shrinks a lot and fits tighter than your normal fit, this is not one of those. It's looser fitting in the arms overall and has a sort of baggy fit to it. Which is not a bad thing, it's roomy and super comfortable, very pleased just runs a bit big for a large which can be perfect if that's what you need.

Extra Pocket Detail
3 5

I love Roark shirts. They're good quality, durable, great fit (not super tight, not super baggy, for standard 6' guy wearing large typically) .. this one though, don't miss the tiny pocket under the main pocket on the left. I didn't see it was there, it's pretty much a styling thing, not very functional, small, and was a bit odd to me. Otherwise standard awesome Roark shirt.

Your cat is going to love this blanket. I keep it on the shelf at home and she lays on it all the time. I take it in the truck on all trips now and she loves it as a safe familiar comfy place on the back seat too.

I'm 6' tall and this makes a great picnic blanket for two. It's kept me and another warm on more than one mountain lake hike. The size is good, it's not like a queen size comforter that will cover both of you completely, but it's great as a wrap around or ground cover. I go on a lot of weekend trips and hikes, and this blanket comes on all of them now.

I've had the single lowrider chairs for years and iterations. I upgraded to the double for those special trips with the ladyfriend. It's amazing.

I take it on every trip now, always, whether I'm with a partner or not. Even solo, I take this chair. It's a bit bulkier but not quite as bulky as two single chairs would be. If you have some extra space, even for yourself only, take this chair.

It's low to the ground, closer to the fire and less overall bulk because of being shorter. Can openers are attached. The cup holder has a divider in the middle so you can have it large to fit a nalgene or GSI Fairshare, or you can split it to hold two cans/bottles easily.

The double lets you lay out on it sideways. Have more space to spread your junk and not lose it. It's amazing I love it I will have one always.

I have the previous version of this pack. I got it in 2011 and have used it everyday since. It's been my to-work laptop tote daily and has accompanied on countless weekend trips. From mountains to desert to narrow sandstone slot canyons that are incredible abrasive, this pack has held up beautifully .I will not hesitate to update to the new version one day down the road if my current one ever wears out, which as of now it's not even close to doing. Provides a nice shady respite for felines in the desert too.

Thorough review from Vital.

"The Intense Carbine 29 is a well-thought-out and beautifully constructed machine that inspires confidence better than most. Sometimes everything comes together to make for an incredible ride, and that's exactly what happened with this bike."
